Author, Joffre White, Visits

On Thursday, we were visited by successful author and UK Patron of Reading, Joffre White. All St Mary’s girls from LIII to UIV attended a talk in the hall, along with children from Wardour, Ludwell and Semley primary schools.  Joffre delivered an interactive and inspiring session to energise the pupils’ imaginations, interest them in the power of words and inspire them in their own reading and creative writing.

At lunchtime, Joffre spoke to girls in the library and signed copies of his books, before running a wonderful creative writing workshop for LIV in the afternoon. The girls were encouraged to develop their imagination and curiosity and given tips and suggestions to aid them in their own writing. All the girls left the library buzzing with enthusiasm, full of ideas and inspired to find the books which will change their lives.
